WILL BE NO ARMISTICE—FIGHTING GOES ON
Germany's Austria-Hungary's and Turkey's notes asking for peace have
been received at Washington and have been carefully considered by President
Wilson and members of his cabinet. Their decision has not been made public
further than to state that arrangements are going forward to strengthen the
military arm of the government and prepare to continue the war. This is
taken to mean than there will be no armistice, but more intensive warfare
against the Germans until they surrender unconditionally.
Great Britain announces that no armistice will be granted unless Germany
surrenders her navy and army. While the other governments appear willing
rto leave the matter in President Wilson's hands and express' the greatest sat
isfaction with his reply to Maximilian's note, it is made plain that they will
insist that Germany be placed in a position where she cannot renew the war
before any cessation of the fighting in which Germany is being rapidly and
severely punished will be consented to by them.
Today the allies continued their fighting on the western front which has
never slackened while peace was being discussed and splendid advances were
made. German troops are being driven out of their strong defenses and im

MAKING IT EASY TO
BOY LIBERTY BONDS
BANKS OFFER TO HELP THOSE
WHO CANNOT PAY CASH TO
TAKE THEIR QUOTAS
No one need do without Liberty
bonds for lack of cash to buy them.
The banks will help those who can
not pay cash and have formed a plan
to make easy payments. The bonds
pay 4 1-4 per cent interest and the
banks will loan money for six months
on these bonds at six per cent and
if one cannot pay then he can renew
at a low rate, so that if a person
bought $100 worth of bonds and had
to borrow the money to pay for them
he would only be out $2.75 in dif
ference in interest paid by the bonds
and what he would ' have to pay the
banks. A man certainly has little
patriotism who is not willing to give
$2.75 to help win the war. The fol
lowing letter from L. F. Parsons,
chairman of the Latah county coun
cil of defense, to a citizen of the
county, whose name is not published,
gives the plan. Read it and then, if

terms. Do not be listed as a slacker

The letter follows:
"I have your letter of the 10th in

sure that if an injustice has been

ernment is calling upon each and
everyone of us to do our part, but
it does not expect us to do more.

"I note that, you say that you have
taken fifty dollars worth of bonds,
and I infer from your letter that
you paid for the same in cash, and
you say that you cannot take another
bond because you have not the cash
on hand. In this call upon the people
to take these bonds, the Government
is asking us to not only take bonds
to the amount of our available cash,
but also to use our credit in purchas
"The Government has made it easy
to do this, and the banks of the coun

bonds. To buy a one hundred dollar
bond you can make arrangement«
whereby it will only cost you two
dollars and seventy-five cents to. take
that amount and give to your country
this credit for a period of one year,
"Arrangements are made whereby
you can go to your bank pay ten dol
lars on each one hundred dollar bond
that you take, and the bank will ac

and will let you use the money at
the rate of 6 per cent until March 1st.

the average ifltëïéSt rate that you
will have to pay to carry these bonds

Government pays you interest on the

therefore, the difference between the
7 per .cent that you pay the bank,
and thé 4 1-4 per cent that you re

WILL WALK IN ORDER
TO BUY LIBERTY BONDS
Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Bartley have
decided to do without a horse and
buggy and a car and invest their
money in Liberty bonds. They have
taken $5,000 worth of bonds of the
fourth Liberty loan. They have al
been accustomed to having a
horse or a car hut with a cousin in
Y. M. C. A. work and several nephews
in the service Mrs. Bartley declares
they felt it their duty to economize
and buy bonds. They have set a fine
example for others to follow.
"Moscow will raise her full quota of
the fourth Liberty loan. I am not so
certain about Latah county going over
the top, but I feel confident enough to
say today that the city will raise her
quota within the time prescribed."
This statement was authorized today
by H. H. Simpson, chairman of the Ea
tah county Liberty loan committee.
Simpson has carefully canvassed the sit
uation and announced that the commit
tee has taken steps to put the city over
the top and feels certain the full quota
($400,000) will be raised before Satur
day night, - *■£*/■
Up to Saturday evening the subscrip
tions reported to the committee for La
tah county totaled $481,000.
ty's quota is $800,000, and the city's
quota is half of that sum. Moscow
subscriptions totaled, on Saturday even
ing, $251,600. Many subscriptions have
been made today and tomorrow the big
drive will be made all over the county.
Jerome J. Day has offered $30,000 if
the county gets within $30,000 of its
quota and it is felt that the Day sub
scription can be safely counted on for
the committee feels that the people of
the county will raise the required amount
to secure this sum.
